Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of IRM UK and myself, thank you for your interest in the Enterprise Data & Business Intelligence Conference Europe 2016.
All the previous editions of this conference have been very successful with more than 250 delegates attending. Evaluations showed that the attendees were very pleased with the selected speakers, topics and setup of the conference.

This year’s event is the 18th edition and covers all aspects of data warehousing, analytics, business intelligence, big data and data innovation. It focuses on aspects such as: trends, design guidelines, product overviews and comparisons, best practices, and new evolving technologies. As like the previous years, a special track is dedicated to big data and related topics and also data Innovation. As usual, this 2016 edition is co-located with the Enterprise Data Conference. This has proved, over the past years, an extremely effective and rewarding combination for participants. We aim to ensure that the joint conference is a perfect opportunity for those interested in data warehousing, business intelligence, big data, information management, data modelling, and data quality to meet and exchange experiences as well as to hear top-notch speakers concentrate on this essential area of IT. Participants of all our past conferences have particularly praised the concentration upon these topics.

Two parallel tracks are devoted to data warehousing and business intelligence. We have invited world renowned speakers, and representatives of some leading organisations, including Gocompare.com, Volkswagen Pon Financial Services , GE Capital, Royal Mail, Zurich, Zipcar, IBM and Visa.

We have also continued the successful approach we adopted over previous years, whereby the first and the last day offer you the opportunity to attend in-depth half-day or full-day workshops. This year these workshops include the following topics: data science in action, big data modelling, the logical data warehouse, modelling for SQL and NoSQL, the new data protection regulations, predictive analytics, big data fundamentals and use cases for big data technology.

The selected topics form a balanced mix. Some are case studies, others are more generic sessions, some topics are more classic and others deal with modern issues. All of them are presented by independent speakers. Together, the program we have constructed for you provides an unparalleled source of information on data warehousing and business intelligence in real life, with examples of the experiences of practitioners. It features a selection of international speakers from both the USA and Europe with a proven reputation both for their ability to inform and educate, but also entertain. This conference will also provide you with an ideal opportunity to meet other delegates with their own problems, experiences and solutions.

We all hope you will join us for what promises again to be an exciting and immensely valuable experience. We are confident that you will value the emphasis on the new areas where business intelligence will play a crucial role. We look forward to seeing you in London in November.
